Here's an article written by Triggly's co-speaker at the event: http://daily.swarthmore.edu/2014/04/23/op-ed-fat-justice-responds/
I sat down in a booth alone with my laptop open. It wasn’t long before a group of men started harassing me. They called me fat. They called me a dyke. They sexually propositioned me. Though I repeatedly asking them to leave me alone the verbal harassment got so aggressive I had to leave the diner. However, instead of exiting into safety, I found more danger. When I was walking to my car, a SUV pulled up beside me and cornered me. There were five men in the SUV and they each told me in graphic detail exactly what they would like to do with me. They eventually got bored and drove away. I was lucky that this incident did not escalate into physical violence, though that has not always been the case in my past.
I have a hard time believing that she was getting so harassed she had to leave only to have a random SUV full of five men pull up and do the same.
